Connecting a world-class music artist with his fans through an unforgettable website
Performance is important for any kind of online experience. Whether you are using the newest iPhone or still rocking an older generation Samsung; wherever in the world you might be, the experience should look and feel solid. Maintaining good performance metrics can be challenging. There isn’t always one right answer, or a set of tasks you should always follow. Although there are good indications of actions you can take, a good performance metric is never guaranteed. We have written a Guidelines document we use within the team so everyone is on top of their game when it comes to this subject matter so we thought: why not share it with the world?
We have three main methods that help us improve our performance metrics go from zero to a hundred, real quick:
We use a set of standard best practices on how to work towards a website with a good, clean performance score. One of them is always keeping an eye on the core web vitals: Each core web vital represents a part of the online user experience that matters the most. And the best part about it is that it’s open source, so everyone can use it.
Another way to improve performance metrics are Web Workers. Web Workers help in making use of multi-core processors efficiently. Think of it as a highway: if there are only two lanes, cars will pile up and cause a traffic jam. If you expand the highway to four, or maybe six lanes, traffic can flow a lot more organically.
Ensuring you have a fast website is key to delivering a good user experience. Not only is it a win for your user experience, it’ll also definitely drive your conversion rates up.
Use the correct tools.
Make sure you have guidelines in order for everyone on the team to be on the same page.
Performance metrics make or break your website, don’t underestimate it.
Performance metrics is a skill: you’ll need someone who knows what to look for (Did we mention that’s us?).
